Boston, MA, United States [Business Wire] – Organizations looking to reap the benefits of moving IBM and Unisys mainframe applications to Amazon Web Services (AWS) can now simplify and accelerate complex transformation projects by leveraging the Astadia Migration Factory.

The Astadia platform offers a complete mainframe-to-cloud migration solution that can reduce the duration of a typical migration project by as much as 90%. The Factory’s automation capabilities and technology coverage, combined with AWS’s massive range of computing solutions, offer a reliable and scalable mainframe migration strategy and enable industry-leading organizations to increase speed, optimize costs, and unlock vertical scalability and agility.

“By providing organizations with a world-class software platform and the highest level of automation on the market, we enable them to reduce the migration timeframes and eliminate business risks such as increasing license costs, lack of agility, and skills shortage. For industries like banking, insurance, automotive, healthcare, and retail, the speed at which they can modernize mission-critical mainframe applications and move to the cloud can be game-changers,” said Scott G. Silk, Chairman and CEO of Astadia.

The Migration Factory has a broad coverage of legacy technologies such as COBOL, Assembler, CA IDMS, Natural, and ADABAS that can be migrated to, among others, Java or C# in combination with all the leading SQL databases. The migrated applications are functionally equivalent and ready for deployment on the target platform of choice.

With comprehensive and fully automated technology and a proven methodology focused on accelerating the mainframe migration and minimizing and controlling risk, Astadia enables clients to successfully migrate their mainframe applications to AWS and scale with a fully integrated automated workflow.

By leveraging the Astadia and AWS partnership, enterprises and government organizations can:

  • Get a rapid assessment providing a roadmap and an estimated cost to move their mainframe workloads to a distributed platform. This includes a variety of options such as the migration method, comprehensive testing, DevOps concepts, and support
  • Perform automated code transformation from multiple sources (z/OS, z/VSE, CICS, IMS, Assembler, JCL, COBOL, Natural, ADS, Fortran, REXX) to modern platforms
  • Automatically convert legacy databases and files (Db2, ADABAS, IDMS, IMS DB, VSAM, GDGs)
  • License the Astadia Migration Factory that accelerates and industrializes the process of migrating and testing legacy applications, resulting infixed-price project fees, fast turnover and ROI.  

The collaboration with AWS builds on an existing relationship, including Astadia’s participation in the AWS Marketplace and the AWS Public Sector Partner Program. Together, the companies are providing a complete cloud services and cloud management portfolio that will give enterprise and government customers fast, flexible access to the cloud.
